  1. History

On April 28, 1877, the 5,000-seat Stamford Bridge officially opened for the first time. It was a splendid event organized by its boss, the richest Lord London, and it was the product of architect Archibald Leitch – a man that no one in the design world knows about.

After 28 years, the second largest stadium in England (just behind Crystal Palace) is still standing there, but its boss does not, even half-alive in poverty. Stamford Bridge was offered for sale at a very low price. It was Fulham who shook his head once and finally, this football field (after a long time only used as an athletic field) was transferred to the Mears brothers.
In 1982, then Chelsea was standing halfway through the rankings in the second division. That day, Chelsea did not have the grandeur of the Stamford Bridge we know today; all at that time was just an empty lot with a stand with only 14,000 seats. Then Ken Bates came and bought Chelsea, Stamford Bridge began to be upgraded and rebuilt into a Chelsea Village complex with restaurants, hotels and training and entertainment centers.
